Proved: Atheists More Intelligent Than Religious People
A review of scientific studies finds that people who hold a more naturalistic view of the world are generally smarter than those who believe in god.
In an analysis of 63 studies conducted since 1928, a researcher at the University of Rochester found “a reliable negative relation between intelligence and religiosity” in 53 of the studies. While 10 of the studies showed a positive correlation, only two of them showed a significant link.
Thirty-five of the studies, however, showed a significantly negative correlation between intelligence and religiosity, according to researcher Miron Zuckerman.
„Most extant explanations [of a negative relation] share one central theme —the premise that religious beliefs are irrational, not anchored in science, not testable and, therefore, unappealing to intelligent people who ‚know better,’” Zuckerman wrote in a paper published this month.
